My very first post!!

I am so excited to finally get this blog up and running! Between all the summer activities, the kids and my crafting, this was put on the back burner. I am thrilled to start my new business "Petals to Polka Dots" and I thought what better way to get the word out than a blog?? I am pretty new to this so for you expert bloggers out there, you will probably have to cut me a little slack until I get really good at this!

My passion for scrapbooking and paper crafting is finally getting some recognition and I am so tickled about it! My mini albums and keepsake boxes are selling in a small boutique in Blue Earth, Minnesota run by a fantastic lady named Lisa Krosch. If you ever get this way, pop in to see her at Lisa's Custom Sewing and Crafts; you will love her!! I have been having a great time as a member of the design team for FeelingScrappy.com. The girls on the board are fantastic and there is so much inspiration to be found in the gallery. Stop by and visit me and all my scrappy friends! The fall looks quite promising as far as craft shows. I have one booked in October and another in November. I am totally psyched about the upcoming holiday season and being able to participate this year in these local shows.

Below I have posted just a few of my recent projects & layouts. I love the creative process of paper crafting and the awesome outlet is gives me to release the everyday pressures I often feel as a stay-at-home-mom. I really hope to inspire others with there own projects and layouts; that's best thing about this hobby!

Hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy your visits. More to come soon!
Hugs, Niki
